Mary E. Wells High School
MRS. KATHRYN BEAUREGARD
We, the Class of 1951, are particularly favored to have
the honor of dedicating our yearbook to Mrs. Kathryn
Beauregard, our faculty adviser.
She has given valuable service to the school as a sterling
teacher and has entered with enthusiasm into our sports and
our fun. Our lives have been the richer for knowing her.
JAMES M. ROBERTSON
THE HOPE OF OUR WORLD
Today, as we stand on the brink of a most con-
fused and uncertain world, many of us are prone to
view the immediate and distant futures dismally. Our
outlooks reflect pessimism. Our hopes seem inadequate
to meet the financial, social and moral trends apparent.
Such reasoning seems wholly indefensible to me;
such reasoning reeks with defeatism; such reasoning
is entirely at odds with the spirit of our fathers and
forefathers. For we in America have within our grasp,
the hope of the world.
We have HEALTH. Here in America we find the
most honored of medical associations; we see public
health programs in every state, city, and town; we
have institutions struggling twenty-four hours a day
to discover preventative measures and curative means
in a constant struggle against disease, injury and death.
Research laboratory scientists and technicians work
round-the-clock to produce facilities to make our
lives healthier and happier. In short, we are by the
large a healthy nation; the healthiest on the globe.
The Bible tells us that "Cleanliness is next to Godli-
ness." Our America by every means at her disposal is
attempting to reach this ideal.
We have EDUCATION. No country on earth
has made education as public as the United States of
America. Education, started in Massachusetts over
three hundred years ago, has grown into a full time
profession. Every child in the United States is exposed
to some kind of institutionalized learning. Public
schools, private schools, state supported universities
and privately endowed colleges have made us the most
literate nation in the world. We are fast proving by
our advances in the scientific, literary, trade and pro-
fessional worlds the truth of the old adage: "A little
learning is a dangerous thing." Our philosophy today
is that education never ceases. With such a philosophy,
our country must go forward, not backward to the
Dark Ages of ignorance and superstition.
Perhaps the greatest of all blessings is religious
tolerance. Side by side in America works the Jew,
The Catholic, the Protestant. Side by side these three
great religious faiths present a united front, staring
down the bigotry and prejudice exhibited by many
America has an abundance of natural resources.
Granted that we are not entirely self sufficient in this
respect, we do recognize the fact that abundance there
is, and if that abundance ever becomes a scarcity,
science is waiting. Scientists are constantly seeking
methods by which good synthetics can be produced,
if and when a need arises.
These United States of America have strength of
military, naval and air power. The combined strength
of these three great branches of our armed forces
serves a two-fold purpose. They stand as a bulwark of
home defense; they operate as a unit to prevent ag-
gression against freedom loving nations less fortunate
than the United States.
Finally, we have today's generation of young
people. Young men and women comparable to the
members of the Class of 1951 of the Mary E. Wells
High School are ready and eager to build a better
world. America's younger generation, healthier than
those of yesterday, betted educated than their fore-
fathers, more tolerant than their elders — these young
men and young women — you, our graduates — you
are the hope of our world!

You have now completed an important part of your journey and the rewarding
years lie ahead of you. At this happy time American Optical Company extends
to each of you congratulations and best wishes. There are many degrees of
success and many yardsticks of measurement. Your own definition, we believe,
is the one you must live by. Now and for the future, we wish you the
best of all things.
